The size and portability of the Hyperlite make it an ideal ambulance carried item, especially while in use. The unit is of a size and weight, allowing it to be placed on the ambulance stretcher within its loading capability. This allows the patient to start treatment immediately which improves the overall outcome.
Air Ambulance (Rotary & Fixed Wing)
There are many situations where altitude can have a significant effect on a casualty suffering, either from decompression sickness or other pressure related trauma that would necessitate an evacuation at low level. This is often not possible where high terrain is involved, or where flights at low levels would very considerably increase fuel utilization and reduce aircraft range. A Hyperlite solves the problem, as the patient can be maintained at a low positive pressure, without even the need for breathing oxygen at high dosages throughout the flight.
The size and portability of the Hyperlite make it an ideal for evacuation from a dive site, especially while in use. The boat can either return to an appropriate port or call ahead to be met by another transport vehicle including rotary aircraft or a larger vessel with a fixed hyperbaric system where treatment can be continued or completed. This allows the patient to start treatment immediately which improves the overall outcome.
